SynopsisDivision Street: America is about the divided city of Chicago "and the 'ordinary' people who make it work; of all strata and colors and dreams; of the extraordinary in the ordinary." - Studs Terkel. Division Street: America is the book that first made Studs Terkel's reputation as this country's foremost oral historian. The people in Division Street: America are so compelling that Terkel revisited many of them for his subsequent works, showing how their feelings have changed and how they have grown in the intervening time. Steppenwolf Arts Exchange brings this unique portrait of America to the stage in its own words.
